Nobunaga by Kuniyoshi


Earlier this week I was in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles to see a friend and edit my Okehazama novel in peace.  I was lucky to find 101 Great Samurai Prints by Utagawa Kuniyoshi.  Without hesitation, I bought the book.  This is a color woodblock print of Oda Nobunaga by Kuniyoshi in the Taiheiki Eiyu Den (Heroic Biographies from the Tale of Grand Pacification).  In the print's text, the Battle of Okehazama was mentioned.

Tenka no tame!
